Thompson Scale has released newly re-engineered versions of its intermediate and heavy-duty checkweighers, which feature similar physical design and controllers as the originals, but with easier-to-program controls.
Eriez• combine Eriez’s E-Z Tech metal detection technology with Thompson Scale Co.’s checkweighers• different systems permit cover capacities from .002 lb to 200 lb, with speeds from 40 to 350 units/min• conveyors available in stainless steel, painted mild steel, or with a corrosion-resistant epoxy for harsh environments
Thermo Electron has developed a contamination detection system said to offer the simplicity of a metal detector with the low operating costs of ownership and enhanced detection capability/sensitivity of an X-ray system.
Upstream from the robotic case packing and palletizing operation at Fresenius, pouches are filled and sent through a retort operation. As might be expected, the systems involved are every bit as sophisticated as those responsible for secondary packaging.
